Mr. Zappola ESL K-4
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and bienvenidos! My name is Mr. Zappola and I am one of two ESL teachers here at James. J. Flynn Elementary. I look forward to a great school year teaching your children.
This will be a different start of the year for all of us. I will work dilligiently with your children throughout this difficult time. Due to our remote format and our childrens' specific needs, I will need all the parental assistance possible. In addition to myself, you could help your child by continuing to promote their attendance and participation in our online format. Please expose your children to English daily in order for your child's optimal English Language Development. You can also help by reading daily to your children. Our students are bright kids and the more they are exposed to English, the better their English skills will become.
Thank you and please feel free to reach out to me for any recommendations you may need in order to foster your child's English Language Development.
